Supercharge Your Manly Skin
As you grow older, your face needs maintenance. If you start caring for your skin from a young age, good for you! It means, you can age gracefully. So have I. Now that I'm 35-looking-like-30, I have to care for my skin more than ever.
But in all seriousness, I'm lazy to head to the spa or facial centre. I'd rather stay home during the weekends or when I don't go out to the endless social outings and events. My facial routine takes me 10-mins twice daily and it's the usual "Wash, Tone, Serum, Moisturise". I don't do much more else cause it's not like I'm gonna turn my look into a Hollywood actor anytime soon - right? Lol!

Okay, yes, the basic routine helps. But it is never enough. Typically - I would avoid any new products, because probably like you, I have a sensitive skin that is prone to breakout if the product is not suitable for me. Till recently, I discovered Kiehl's newly-unveiled masques at Glasshouse at Seputeh recently. It takes only 5-10 extra mins to add into your cleaning routine, twice a week. Well, that sounds minimal and I can definitely do with.
1. Kiehl's Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque
First of all, no - the masque doesn't smell like turmeric on your face. The whole thing actually smells pretty good. This invigorating facial masque helps visibly improve the overall look of your skin, while crushed Cranberry Seeds within the formula gently exfoliate for a smoother, brighter and illuminated complexion.
I care more about this product because of 2 reasons:
1. It supercharges your tired skin - after all those late nights!
2. It actually does illuminates your complexion. And hey, we Asians do love anything that brightens our skin (mostly).
2. Kiehl's Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Masque
So, this masque is the one that will help to defend and replenishes your skin in order to reduce the visible effects of pollution and helps to prevent impurities from adhering to your skin. This one - it smells good and will leave your skin feeling quite fresh!
I have high hope for this masque because of the clinical test results shows a statistically significant improvement of at least 2x over the course of 4 weeks. Well, we'll see.
At this moment, I'm using both masques, the energizing one (masque no. 1) on Wednesday cause I need to supercharge my skin mid-week; and the replenishing one (masque no. 2) on Sunday - so that I'll get a clear skin to start the week with. I'll update you in a month's time and let you know what I think by then. But right now, I am already loving it. And I think you'll love it too!
